The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments are more than simply rules and laws.  They are a foundation of moral teaching and shape our obligations as Christians in relationship to God.  The Ten Commandments were given to Moses by God on Mt. Sinai after exiting Egypt. These Commandments were the rules that God expected the Hebrews to follow and they are also the rules that we are to follow. Today the teachings of the Ten Commandments are just as powerful and binding as they were when they were written.

1. I am the Lord your God. You shall not have strange gods before me
2. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain
3. Remember to keep holy the Lord's day
4. Honor your father and your mother
5. You shall not kill
6. You shall not commit adultery
7. You shall not steal
8. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor
9. You shall not desire your neighbor's wife
10. You shall not desire your neighbor's goods

The 2 Greatest Commandments 

When asked which was the greatest of the commandments, Jesus responded with two.  In this teaching of Jesus, these commandments complement each other and cannot be seen as existing apart from the other. The first is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, mind and strength and the second is to love thy neighbor as thyself.
